Kid-Friendly Recipe: Pepperoni Pizza Waffles

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on November 1, 2011

The kiddo claims that he doesn’t like pizza. Each time we have it for dinner I offer him a piece, and he turns away all snooty-like. Until we are actually sitting down at the table eating, and then he wants a piece. Which usually comes off of Hubs’ plate, because that’s the kind of stand-up guy he is.

But still, he claims to not like pizza. Even when we make it together and create funny faces out of the toppings, up until the minute he’s chewing on it, he claims that he doesn’t like it.

I’ll be reminding him of this when he’s 16 years old and only wants to eat pizza. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ll remind him that he doesn’t like pizza, and use that as a reason to refuse filling him with it each and every day. Unless he wants to make it for himself, then by all means, eat whatever you want.

Pepperoni Pizza

Last weekend when I made a new recipe for the kiddo, I knew what to expect. He’d refuse it. Claim that he doesn’t like it. Repeat endlessly that he won’t like it. And then after he’s helped me mix the ingredients together, he’d eat it. Not just a nibble here and there to make me happy. He’s eat one. And then another. Until his guts were exploding.

Pizza Waffles

With pizza. Waffle pizza to be exact. Combining two of our families favorites foods, even if the kiddo claims otherwise.

What a great way to get your kiddo to eat something he claims he “doesn’t” like! I love your watermark, that is so cute.

Even though these are kid friendly, I would eat them :)

I LOVE a good waffle creation! I’ve been wanting to try this forever! I have the pepperoni and the cheese, but I couldn’t decide what to use for the crust. I thought about just using waffle mix and seeing how it turned out. Your recipe sounds awesome…I may have to give it a try soon!
